Where did the trend come from
The dress-up trend originates from the paired flash mob Flip The Switch Challenge, the essence of which is to change clothes with a partner, whether it be a girl or a guy, after a short blackout. A second of darkness in this case became the ideal moment for mounting gluing in the video. The basis of the flash mob is Drake’s single “Nonstop” from the album Scorpion.
Later, various variations of TikTok appeared with transformations. For example, at one time videos were popular, the characters of which changed their images after performing simple hand movements to the dynamic song “Absolutely anything”. Also, videos with reincarnations under the composition “Try me” fell into the trends. Only in these videos there was a special attribute – a chain that was twisted around the neck, and thus changed the images.
Pretty young trend – #dripchallenge or shoe challenge. Its essence is simple – the user sits with a shoe in his hands, then throws the shoes up (“drip” is translated as a drop, and the shoe in this case symbolizes a drop), and then suddenly finds himself in a new image. The dynamic track and the effect of reincarnation, which the application functionality allows you to create, made this challenge popular all over the world.
